Z1 is now offering a complete rear brake upgrade package for all G35 and 350z owners looking for an economical big brake kit, in comparison to the much more expensive aftermarket kits already available. Produced by Akebono Japan by request from Nissan Motors for the '09+ Nissan 370Z and the '08+ G37, the quality and durability of these calipers and hardware are undeniable.
The beauty of the Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono brake kit, as opposed to much more expensive aftermarket brake kits, lies in the fact that it uses OEM Nissan/Infiniti parts.

Paired with the Z1 Stainless Steel Brake Lines, your Z/G will have one of the ultimate brake upgrades on the market.

Z1 Custom Car Note:
For 350Z/G35 owners who are planning on eventually Powder Coating their Brake Calipers, you may select to use the Infiniti G37 Sport Calipers. Produced by Akebono, these are a cheaper alternative to the NISSAN branded calipers.
You must either trim or remove the dust shields behind the brake rotor in order to all for the proper clearance of the larger 14" brake rotors and calipers.
The 14" Akebono Big Brake Kit requires 18" or larger wheels for correct fitment.
If upgrading from OEM Brembo Brakes, you'll also need to purchase 4 OE rear brake caliper bolts, available HERE. Purchase of these bolts is ONLY necessary if you're upgrading from Brembo brake calipers.
